Buenos Aires la belleza

Plaza de Mayo around sunset

You may be wondering, when is Scott going to talk about non-work stuff — what about the city of Buenos Aires itself?

It’s true, I haven’t had a chance to do this great city of Buenos Aires any justice given the amount of info I’ve been absorbing about my host office, the people and their ways of working in fears of making my posts even longer than they already are.

So to compensate, I’ll let my photos do the talking this time. I especially enjoyed the city’s architecture and their incredibly picturesque world renowned cemeteries.

This city has been called the Paris of South America, and soon you’ll understand why…

A short ferry ride to Colonia, Uruguay…

1 hour ride across the widest river in the world, Rio de la Plata. 140 miles at its widest point.
